Giants Ink Feagles For 2 Years

                   New York Giants punter Jeff Feagles 

One week after he became the oldest player to participate in a Super Bowl, New York Giants punter Jeff Feagles, according to the Associated Press, signed a 2-year deal on Tuesday; Feagles declined to state how much money he would earn, but last season, he made $1 million.  So I would think that Feagles received a healthy bump in pay as part of the contract.

Feagles admitted that he had given retirement some thought briefly after the Giants’ win over the New England Patriots in Super Bowl XLII; however, in an interview with AP, Feagles said, “Going through the season I proved to myself that I could continue to do this at a high level.  Certainly I considered riding off into the sunset after winning the Super Bowl.  But I still have a fire to play football.  Making my decision to stay easier was having my family living here.  The wild card in the whole decision was the Giants, and they wanted me to come back.  I can’t say enough about the organization.”

Considered one of the best directional punters in the NFL, Feagles had a net average of 36 yards on 71 punts during the 2007 season, landing 25 inside the opponents’ 20-yard line.  On Wednesday, Feagles will be inducted into the University of Miami Hall of Fame; he was a member of the Hurricanes’ undefeated national championship team of 1987.
